Ancona, September 2011 – CRN, shipyard and brand of the Ferretti Group, specialized in the construction of fully customised steel and aluminium megayachts from 46 to 90 metres and displacement ones made of composite material (CRN Navetta 43) 43 metres long, has built a new leisure boat, the mega yacht CRN 130 60 metres "Darlings Danama", privately launched in Ancona last March.

Darlings Danama, hull number 130 of the shipyard, made of steel and aluminium and commissioned to CRN by a European ship owner, is the sixth 60 metre leisure boat built from 2005 till today, a particularly significant result within this market segment. Darlings Danama was built on a 10.20 metres naval platform, the same one used for other important 60m mega yachts manufactured by the shipyard of Ancona, such as the CRN 126 "Blue Eyes" 60 m and CRN 128 "Mimtee" 60m.

Darlings Danama main deck

The mega yacht can comfortably host 12 people, distributed in 5 guest cabins and the master suite, and 14 crew members. The boat is equipped with two Caterpillar 3512 B-Chp 1'455 kW@1835 rpm engines, which make it possible to navigate at a maximum speed of 15 knots and a cruising speed of 14 knots.

Some of its brand features, also found in other CRN boats, are the technological innovations and the open spaces which create a new way of life at sea, such as the terrace in the master suite and the beach club at the stern: the stern hatch turns into a large beach by the sea.

The slim and sleek bow and the imposing volumes, with wide spaces extending over the sea, characterize this cream mega yacht, whose external lines and internal subdivisions bear the signature of Studio Zuccon International Project, that worked in closed collaboration with the technical office of CRN that dealt with the designing of the boat.

The designers have designed the mega yacht giving great attention to space and detail, making it discreet, with elegant lines and timeless shapes, which add value both to the ship owner and the shipyard.

As regards the interior design, which were taken care of by the ship owner's architects, Cristina and Alexandre Negoescu together with the Centro Stile of CRN, their is a dominance of circular lines which represent the new image of onboard comfort, with fluid spaces that 'explode' and extend to all the areas. The minimal style and the art deco spirit fuse together with elegance and sophistication and are represented in a modern style.

The interior, which has lots of open spaces, are mainly monochromatic, dominated by white sheer oak creating a new, extremely enjoyable, contemporary habitat which enhances the spaces.

On the main deck, the space of the main hall was reduced to widen the outdoor space obtaining a larger cockpit. The large main hall, furnished with light coloured, white and beige, armchairs and sofas covered with Fendi Club House Outdoor line fabrics, welcomes guests at the deck entrance of the stern.

Designed as a single wide space, the main hall has great luminosity given by the lights coming from the wide windows and is enhanced by the light wood of the flooring and the furniture: white oak staves, the leitmotif in the guest areas and the white sheer oak of the furnishings.

The big hall is subdivided into a bar area on the left right beyond the entrance leading into a living room and a dining room.

The bar area in the main hall is custom made, covered in Portoro marble, a precious quality of black marble characterized by golden veins. The bar structure was completely covered by hand with Marquetterie de Paille, hand-cut strips of straw glued one by one, by the Parisian company Atellier Lison De Caunes.

The lining of the bar unit is made of bronze coloured mosaic branded Sicis.

Two large wall bookcases, with white lacquered structures and doors covered with genuine natural white Galuchat by Foglizzo, are right outside the living area that is furnished with a low upright unit made of white sheer oak with doors covered in Galuschat.

The ceiling is unique since is reproduces the shape of the sun with irregular steel rays which hold the panels up.

The hall is virtually separate from the living room with a decorative glass screen "verré gravé" with geometrical patterns designed personally by the architects and custom made by French artisans.

The oval dining table is also custom made and can seat up to 14 people; it has an S-shaped base made of polished steel with a white polished lacquered top.

Darlings Danama sun deck

Darlings Danama has one of the hallmarks found on all the CRN mega yachts: the terrace of the master cabin that can be enjoyed open even during navigation and which can be set up as a balcony with a coffee table and armchairs for breakfast, everything here is branded Fendi.

On this boat, CRN’s love for open spaces and open air on board its mega yachts, is also expressed through the “beach club”.

The stern hatch turns into a large beach close to the sea, furnished with comfortable sun beds. It can also be used as a solarium.  Behind it lies a wide indoor space which is designed for the complete relaxation of the guests who can easily enjoy the vicinity of the sea while relaxing in the area furnished as a lounge.

The outdoor open space at the stern of the sun deck is large:  the American bar is enriched by the high stools branded Fendi Club House. Aft is a large relaxation area furnished with eight sundecks and small tables, all made by the Spanish company Vondom. The sofas in this area have sharp angles that characterize the outdoor furniture, to contrast the sinuous and curved style of the interior.

The lobby of the sun deck has a small reading room with a panoramic view towards the bow. Outside, on the bow, there is a circular raised platform with a Jacuzzi pool and surrounding cushions. Everything is made from soft coloured outdoor Perennials Plushy fabrics, white and beige.

The large garage behind the lounge area, holds 2 tender Castoldi of 7.5 m with electro-hydraulic lateral openings. Right behind that, towards the bow, is the engine room combined with the control room. “Darlings Danama” is powered by 2 Caterpillar 3512B engines that allow it to reach a cruising speed of 14 knots and a maximum speed of 15. The boat is classified as top-class in the Lloyd’s Register of Shipping and is complaint to the MCA regulations.
